Compendium of Curiosities III-Faded Layers

It's time once again for the Compendium of Curiosities III, hostessed by the wonderful Linda Ledbetter on her blog. You can find all the details here. As always, we are working out of the book of the same name by Tim Holtz . And this week our sponsor is The Funkie Junkie and they are providing a $25 gift certificate to one lucky player.

This challenge is on page 58 if you are following along.

I started by making my tag according to Tim's directions in the book. I LOVE his Bigz Butterfly die, so I decided to use it again for this project. I also added some greenery and one of Tim's bows.
